The Chartered College of Teaching (CCT) is the professional body for teaching – working to celebrate, support and connect teachers in providing the best possible education for children and young people.

Montessori Global Education’s well-established partnership with CCT demonstrates our ongoing commitment to support early years professionalisation and broaden the range of quality resources available to practitioners and educators from all areas of the education sector. Early years practitioners are vital to the holistic early development of children, yet too often they face a lack of resources and professional development opportunities. The various elements of this partnership seek to bridge that gap.

Our collaborative work includes:

  1. Supporting CCT to create the Early Childhood Hub, which provides professional resources, insight and guidance for the early years community. The Hub provides a wealth of resources, including case studies on pedagogy and practice, videos and interviews with early years practitioners on play, engagement, cognitive development and diversifying the Early Years curriculum, plus the latest research summaries and Impact articles on wellbeing, curriculum and supporting learning.

  2. Offering the MCI graduate community free CCT membership via the Montessori Global Education Network. Membership is designed for qualified teachers working with children and young people aged 0-19. Members get termly copies of Impact, invitations to exclusive webinars and events, and access to all online content on MyCollege. Members also become eligible to use the postnominals “MCCT”, to stand and vote in CCT Council elections, and work towards becoming a Chartered Teacher.

“The early years play a pivotal role in the future educational outcomes for children. However, despite the importance of the early years sector in helping young people to reach their potential, practitioners too often face a lack of resources and professional development opportunities. The Chartered College of Teaching is committed to raising the status of teaching and working with individuals and groups across the early years sector to recognise their professionalism and dedication to children and young people. Our Early Childhood Hub will play an essential role in strengthening the expertise of early years practitioners with their insights at its heart.

We are thrilled that the Montessori Group supports this vision. We look forward to working with them on the Early Childhood Hub to help early years practitioners shape the future of teaching, benefiting children and the whole of society for generations to come.”
